“A good conference Hotel ”
Reviewed 4 August 2014 via mobile

The rooms are okay, but they are really different. Different I size, view, and have they are decorated.

The breakfast and lunch buffet are really good, something fore everyone.

The conference rooms are great!
Easy to find and easy to get out for people that smoke. Don't know why I bring up smoke, because I don't smoke. But it's always impotent to people that do.
When you are there on conference the hotel has free ice-cream and that's alway a plus.

There are gym rooms, never tried it so therefor I can't say much about them.

I have always had a good time when I have been there.

Stayed April 2014

Good hotel in Haugesund. Book a room with a view to Smedasundet and you will not be disappointed. We had a superior room, which we found to be quite small. It was clean and had a good view with balcony though. Breakfast is very good, but unattentive staff in the breakfast area. Check-in was quick and professional. Wifi very good.

Really nice hotel with great view and perfect location in Haugesund Norway. Although my room did not have air-condition and it was little bit to warm the hotel stuff was really friendly and helpful and they offered to move me to a cooler and bigger room without additional charge. I also had some remarks about the tidiness but once I passed my observation to the front desk everything was sorted out and you could see that housekeeping improved immediately.
I recommend this hotel to everyone that is going to spend some time in Haugesund Norway. They serve the best breakfast I had ever eaten in Norwegian hotel, plenty of selection from fresh fruits to traditional Norwegian herrings, through very tasty french patisserie.

Room Tip: If you prefer temperature in the room lower than 23 degrees centigrade inform front desk at arrival.

Nice hotel in the centre of Haugesund, with views to the canal Smeasundet - if lucky! Had a spacious suite with the most wonderful view. Everything looking nice and tidy - except for the wooden floor. The floor is rather worn looking with a lot of wounds and scratches, needs replacement. OK breakfast

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of Smeasundet

This hotel was re-decorated not long ago, and that part of the hotel is absolutely amazing. The rooms are big, spacious and lovely decorated. The same can not be said about the old part of the hotel, where the "maritime" decorations are equal to outdated. What's bad about this part of the hotel is that everything seems old. The hairdryer, the bed, the bathroom, and it contributes to the impression that the hotel is a bit "worn out". The food is amazing, though. The breakfast and dinner bufet offered all kinds of warm and cold dishes, delicately prepared. The view from the breakfast hall is amazing too. The hotel is central, surrounded by many shops, restaurants and bars. The bar on the hotel is also a nice place to spend your night if you're not interested in going out. The hotel has a gym available to their guests free of charge.

Room Tip: If you want a good room, be sure to choose a room in the new part of the hotel, with a seaview rathe...

Stayed at this hotel for a 2 day conference.

The room I got was reeking of cigarette smoke and was very small and dingy. The mini bar was not cold, and they did not fix this during my stay, even though I asked them to twice quite early the first day when I noticed. The room was also very dusty, and paint was coming off the window frame..... Had the hotel not been full I would have asked to change room.

The conference part og my stay was good. The conference rooms where all great, and the breakfast and dinners where good.

To bad with the room.....

Room Tip: Do not stay in room 378

The hotel is very central, looks nice, has entrance right by the canal, and a view over said canal. Good breakfast, lots to choose from. This hotel chain is known for good food. I can stay here again :)

Room Tip: If you can get a room on the seaside, you have something nice to look at in the evening..
